Branko Nisevic has resigned as coach of Premier League side Gzira United.

Discussions between Nisevic and club president Sharlon Pace over the team's performances in the first round of this season's Premier League led the two parties to agree to terminate their contract by mutual consent.

Gzira have handed the reins of the team to assistant coach Darren Abdilla who had guided them to promotion to the Premier League last season.

Nisevic was appointed coach of Gzira United in the close season after losing his job as Hibernians coach.

In a statement, Mr Nisevic said: "I want to thank everyone, who have been with me. Gzira UTD is maybe a small Club, but with so many great people.

"After a long discussion with Club’s President, Sharlon Pace, it was mutually decided, that in the interest of the Club, I will be stopping with immediate effect.

"I think, decision to leave after 11 games, is important, as I believe and hope, that it will create a new spark within the team and Club. This change should affect the players to work harder and be more motivated, for the very important games to come.

"I thank players and wish them all the best for the coming games. It has been a pleasure to work with them, and especially seeing those younger players for the first time in the Premier League."
